Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The heat quit working in our 2001 Dodge Dakota quad cab. It would not work on any of the blower settings. I began looking up possible solutions to the problem. I replaced the fuse, and it still didn't work. I also replaced the resistor. While looking online for other options, I realized that many vehicles from Dodge from that year and surrounding years had a common problem. Everyone had mentioned the wiring harness was melted. Sure enough, I went and checked and it was melted just before where the resistor plugs in.

No air flows through vents from outside vehicle. You can tell because, when driving with windows up, no air comes inside with dial set for vent. Blower moves air around, but won't bring air in. Took to dealer, they said it's normal since they drove another new vehicle and it does the same. Possible hazard because of potential carbon monoxide buildup in unvented vehicle?

The problem that I have with this truck is the windows all fog/frost up including the front windshield. The defroster/heater is not sufficiant enough to clear the windows. I have brought this to the attention of the dealership several times and have requested the cancelation of my contract with them. I feel that it is very unsafe to travel this way but have had to several times. If I roll the windows down it will clear the fog off but does not clear the frost but as soon as I roll the window back up they fog/frost up again.
